. >> that is right, second straight day, jay carney was pressed on whether or not the president misled the country, they pressed on this, they know they're under siege, they say anybody one, this is only 5% in terms of the people who buy their insurance and are getting cancellation letters. but as you know, 5% equals about 14 million people potentially that could get these letters, that is a huge chunk of the market, even though it is just 5%. secondly, they said what the president meant was, not what he said, was you could keep your own plan, if you had your own plan before march of 2010, signed into law, you wouldn't be affected. and after that, you're essentially on your own. the problem is, they're adding all of these contexts and qualifiers, the thing the president did not mention. here is jay carney. >> do the president's words matter? >> well, all i ask of fox and everybody else is to provide the context? >> he didn't provide the context back then. >> there has been essentially five years of debate. >> last year, valerie jared sent out a tweet and said in her words nothing in obama care for

initially come out high. their tax subsidies available. let me play for you what jay carney said this morning to your point about young people and whether they'll sign up. >> there's a silver lining here when it comes to young people an young people are important to this working. it was always the case, no matter how good the website was going to be, that young americans were going to be the last group to sign up. i don't know about you in college or everything i did when i was young as last minute. >> well, i'm with jay carney on that one to the extent that i was a procrastinator and never wrote my paper until the last paper. does he have a point, though, we don't know right now that the accusations you're making are speculative? >> here's what we know, chris. and i think we can find common ground here. we know that we were promised that this website would be working great and it's not and it is a total mess. >> and the white house would concede that. >> we know that the president promised -- okay, fine. they keep saying and they keep saying. we know that the president promised
increase to be able to do it. >> reporter: white house press secretary jay carney, who is briefing now, says the affordable care act requirement that insurance plans cover things like maternity care and that they have no cap on lifetime expenses is what makes them more expensive. carney says many people will have better insurance or less cost and in some cases people whose cost goes up will receive government tax subsidies that actually reduce what they finally pay. gretchen? >> wendell, thanks so much for providing a lot of those answers for us. >>> speaking of the obama care website, now you see her, now you don't. the smiling young woman featured on obama care's website, guess what? she's gone now. scrubbed out in an apparent web do-over. in her place, the far less eye catching quartet of really brilliant icons. to sign up for obama care. the identity of the woman remains a big secret. hard to believe since most people in washington can never keep a secret. there's some speculation she was scrubbed from the site to keep her safe after she became the target of heated criticism of the
'll take that as a maybe yes, maybe no and move on to something that jay carney said in response to this. >> the fact is we have been enormously cooperative and gone to extraordinary efforts to work with seven different congressional committees investigating what happened before, during and after the benghazi attacks, including testimony of 13 different congressional hearings and participation in 40 staff briefings and the provision of over 25,000 pages of documents. >> is administration correct in -- >> candy -- >> go ahead. >> well, i'll tell you right now, i pamean, jay carney, well over a week well after that had said this was not preplanned or meditated and blamed this on the video and we still don't have answers why that information came out the way it did and the misrepresentations were made to the american people. but there is much information that has been brought forward including why were security requests denied, provided access to these survivors. we asked for months in trying to work cooperatively with the administration, so what he said is not the case. it can't be that th
. over the past couple of days, some of the people involved david axelrod, jay carney suggested that was never a consideration. was this a big deal or not a big deal? >> a big deal in the following sense. have you a presidency at the low point, after the last round of budget negotiations in 2011. the president's poll numbers are down. he's seen as weak. bill dal y, white house chief of staff at the time, look, we have to consider, as he said the other day, we have to consider every option. one thing to look at, do the due diligence, lets test it, lets see how obama clinton does compared to obama/biden. now, when the results came back it showed it didn't help that much and didn't go forward. but it is sort of extraordinary. if you think about the white house chief of staff, the top advisers. it was a very small group that knew about this david plouffe, axelrod, the president's pollster. for that group of people to say, look, we need to take a look at this, even though they knew it was a long shot and there would be a downside. it was certainly part of the history of this administ

this is a -- it was a very difficult period politically. >> here's jay carney responding to the report in the book coming out tuesday. >> it's important to know that campaigns and pollsters as part of campaigns test a lot of things. what i can tell you without a doubt is that the president never considered that and had anyone brought that idea to him, he would have laughed it out of the room. joe biden has been an asset to this president in two campaigns and throughout five years of this administration. >> well, chris cillizza is an msnbc contributor. and michael scherer for "time" magazine. chris, i want you to first get in on this. there's one way to play it down. i guess that's what bill daly was doing. not denying it. the key is he accepted the fact of this book that there was a set of focus groups taken, there was money spent to try to decide whether to dump the vice president who was close to bill daly personally and close to the president. they were that worried that they conducted all this research to dump him. and then they decided after getting the research, not deciding ahead of time we love this

. if it doesn't it's junk and will be trashed. >> jay carney said if you like your plan, but it is a crummy plan you can't keep your plan. that's what the president wanted -- everyone is making excuses. >> this was a lie barack obama and the democrats sold to the american people because they knew if they sold everyone the idea that they would lose their health insurance, it would be replaced by a plan that was double or triple it never would have passed. they lied because they knew if they told the truth it never would have happened. >> that's key. kirsten. >> the reason why we were sold this is for a lot of people in the obama administration and the democrats they believe the ends justifies the means. their means are good. they have good intentions and yes, we need a better health care system. you know me. i'm a conservative. we need insurance reform coupled with tort reform. we need major change and people are afraid. >> we have the free market. >> we have to sell this hard. >> senator, you have lived the life. >> let me tell you uh -- >> i have lived it. i have abused it as well. >> i don't k
it & it will be trashed. >> katie. jay carney actually said today if you like your plan but it's a crummy plan, you can't keep your plan. that's what the president -- everyone's making excuses. >> first of all, this idea that you're saying people's plans are crummy, it's very patronizing. second of all, this was a lie that barack obama and the democrats sold to the american people because they knew that if they sold everyone this idea, that they'll lose their health insurance that it would get replaced but a plan that was double or triple what they were paying then it would never have passed. they lied because if they were to tell the american people the truth that would have never happened. that's the bottom line. >> that's key. kirsten. >> the reason why we were sold this is because for a lot of people in the obama administration and the democrats they believed that the end justifies the means. so their means are good. they have good intentions. and yes, we need a better health care system in this country, hands down. and you know me, sean. i'm a conservative. i believe we need health care reform. we
is satisfied with the rollout, jay carney reiterated with palpable frustration they're working 24/7 to get the website and all of the rest up to par. >> in the meantime, we're, you know, busting rocks every day to fix the website. so that it's up and running at a standard that's acceptable for the vast majority of americans by the end of the month. >> four weeks to go, and you can tell, they know that the clock is ticking. joining me is congressman jerrold nadler, democrat of new york. and congressman, you know, do you get the sense that the problems with the website have now completely obscured the central point, which is that the benefits that the affordable care act potentially offers to people? >> no, i don't think they have completely obscured it. i think they have taken the place in the press for a little time. but again, this was a major, major social change, the most major change since medicare and medicaid 35 years ago. and in two years, no one is going to remember this if the law works. >> right. >> if most people get insurance, which they will, that's cheaper and more effective,
finance agency. it was 56-42. that was the cloture vote. they needed 60 to move forward. jay carney at the white house briefing which is wrapping up now over at the white house says the white house is, quote, enormous -- the news was enormously disappointing. that's from jay carney. and a tweet just a short while ago from the assistant leader in the house, james clyburn saying, quote, i'm disappointed by the senate vote today on the watt nomination. senate's coming back in at 2:00 p.m. eastern and you can follow that coverage on c-span-2. while we wait for the president, we'll take you back to the news room of mother jones from this morning's "washington journal." host: what is dark money? guest: dark money is this term that we've used to describe the secret money that is flowing through our elections at the state, at the local and of ourse at the national level. we've seen an explosion of what we call dark money and it's this money where we don't know who the donors are. we don't know in many cases how the money is actually being spent. and so we have made it a priority of ours her
to be lowering expectation. here's press secretary jay carney yesterday before the dismal numbers came out. >> if you're asking me will enrollment be low, the answer is, yes, because that was always going to be the case. martha: live from the white house with more on this, ed henry. it doesn't sound like the administration is on track to enroll its goal of seven million americans in obamacare this year, certainly. >> reporter: right. and what they're trying to do now, martha, is manage expectations. that's what jay carney was doing there. they're trying to compare it to mitt romney's situation oh so many years ago. in the early days people shopped around, talked to their spouse, and then they make a decision closer to january 1st. we'll see how all that pans out. but as you say, these early numbers are embarrassing. it's nothing short of embarrassing for the administration. day one, six people enrolled. and as you say, this is from the administration's own internal notes at the health and human services department. it was released by a republican critic, darrell issa, but he's getting info
, the white house yesterday, jay carney effectively said yes there are some plans that don't meet the minimum standard of the affordable care act. that is, in fact, true. they would say though our plan allows you to get benefits. yes maybe your premium goes up, your deductible goes up but you have more benefits including for mental health. what did the white house tell you >> they basically made the same point. they said look anyone who is losing their insurance is losing their insurance because it doesn't meet our standards. and that this new policy will give people more protection, they can't be dropped because they get sick, they by and large will have a richer package of benefits. the problem is a lot of the folks we talked to who have received these notices first were shocked that they got them because they thought the president had told them they wouldn't but also they didn't like the government telling them what they had to buy. and they in some cases were very happy with the more bear bones policy that they thought met their needs, and cost them less. now there was one individual who
i. white house secretary jay carney said americans should look to the insurers for an explanation. >> part two. >> basically, throw you off that plan telling you after a year or two that it was changing and said, here's your new option because your plan has changed, that that new plan is grandfathered in, how can that be? you can't grandfather a plan in 2010 na didn't come into existence in 2012 or 2011. it's not about fault t. insurers are in the leadup to these marketplaces are doing what they had always done. >> all right, the most heated exchange came when a democratic congressman took issue with republicans that suggesting they've offered an alternative to obama care. take a look. >> we lost the policy fight and what did we do? we went back to our districts and we told our seniors although we voted no, we personally believe and we'll work with the bush administration to make it work. that's what we did and how many of you stood up to do that? none. zero. zero. >> well, will the gentleman yield? >> yes, i will. >> i will just tell you. >> where are you? >> right here. you aske
't ready. jay carney said the president was shown this website ahead of time as though it was ready. so, figuring out who inside the organization knew but failed to communicate is important, but, more importantly, because so many other areas including the risk of private information coming out in a website that isn't ready. we really need to ask those questions and see what's internally going on. >> here is the department's response to the susubpoena. since october 10th, the committee has made five separate requests for a wide-range of documents, their timeline was not feasible given the vast scope of their request. it goes on. we are disappointed that the committee believes a subpoena was necessary, however, it does not change our intent to continue to cooperate with them to produce documents as we were able to. sebelius apologized for that house hearing for 3 1/2 hours yesterday morning. she will next go before the senate finance committee that is next wednesday. >>> senator ted cruz's father told supporters during his son's senate campaign that he would like to send president obama,
